A versatile thin and light blue laptop, the Asus Vivobook Pro 15 OLED S3500QC-L1081T multimedia designed for creating and playing takes advantage of a 15-inch DCI-P3 Full HD OLED display with vivid colors as well as responsiveness enhanced by its fast SSD storage. This creator-oriented gaming laptop PC is capable of running a number of games thanks to its NVIDIA Ampere GeForce RTX 3050 ray tracing graphics card which also accelerates processing, like the powerful core combining an AMD Cezanne Octo Core Ryzen 7 5800H processor and 16 GB of RAM. This laptop also benefits from a backlit keyboard as well as Wi-Fi ax and USB-C connectivity.

Chassis, connectors, screen of the Asus Vivobook Pro 15 OLED S3500QC-L1081T
It adopts a Quiet Blue design with a pattern on the shell at the level of the brand which gives it a look that is both original and discreet.
This slim and light versatile laptop PC is cooled by IceCool Plus technology with 2 fans, heat pipes and air grilles, while 3 preset operating profiles are offered.
The connectivity integrated into this multimedia laptop designed to play and create is good, consisting of 1 USB-C, a useful HDMI video output in order to easily connect this PC to a TV or a monitor for example, without modules. Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi ax wire ( more efficient and recent than Wi-Fi ac ) to communicate and connect remotely, from an audio port or even 3 USBs including 1 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers achieved up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are connected to it.
For better privacy, you can slide a cover in front of the webcam.
Of course, it is possible to backlight the keys of the chiclet keyboard in order to better distinguish them in a dimly lit environment.
Creatives will love the display because it reproduces colors much more faithfully than average, with deep blacks and large vertical and horizontal viewing angles, as it is adorned with DCI-P3 Pantone OLED features. Gamers will appreciate the very low latency of 0.2ms. With its Full HD definition and 16: 9 aspect ratio, the screen lends itself well to displaying High Definition content such as videos. Shiny treated, the screen gives punch to the colors but is subject to reflections in a bright environment (eg outdoors).
Performance, battery life of the Asus Vivobook Pro 15 OLED S3500QC-L1081T
The Asus Vivobook Pro 15 OLED S3500QC-L1081T is aimed at those who want a powerful 15-inch thin and light laptop with a creative and gaming focus.
As it incorporates an AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 7 5800H Cezanne Octo Core processor coupled with 16 GB of RAM, it delivers overall power capable of appealing to demanding users.
Creators will particularly appreciate getting much faster processing with this core than with a Quad / Hexa Core and 8 GB DDR4. We particularly feel the difference in areas requiring CPU and RAM resources taking advantage of multicore, such as video editing, 3D rendering or photo editing.
In addition, the dedicated GeForce RTX 3050 on-board graphics card accelerates processing in software using GPU computing power, such as Sony Vegas or Adobe Premiere / Photoshop.
Equipped with the NVIDIA Ampere architecture, the GeForce RTX 3050 ray tracing is also able to run many games for a few concessions under the opuses greedy in graphics resources to obtain a good playability.
SSD storage clearly enhances responsiveness and fluidity on a daily basis compared to a simple hard drive. This implies in particular a faster arrival on the maps of online games for example or even faster starts / stops, processing and launches of software / games.
It must be said that an SSD is much faster than a hard drive while being more energy efficient, more resistant to shocks and silent.
With its 512 GB, the SSD here integrated offers a capacity similar to the standard of hard disks. But obviously in the event that you need additional space, you can rely on an external storage unit. Favoring a USB-C / USB 3.0 device then represents an interesting option for obtaining fast transfers.
Finally in terms of battery life, expect around 8 hours of battery operation in light use for this versatile multimedia computer designed to create and play whose transport is facilitated by the finesse and weight controlled. However, it is necessary to expect heating and noise when it is strongly pushed (eg: treatments, games).
